You need a composite dongle, as in http://www.solidsignal.com/pview.asp?p=10pincompos  Make sure you get the correct one, there is a Component dongle also.

Try to use the 10-pin Mini-DIN output connector or buy a converter from HDMI to RCA, HDMI to Composite. If you are near any local stores that sells those like RadioShack, then you can check if it is available. Or check and order online at SolidSignal.

You only need the modulator if the TV only has coax - many SD TVs have yellow composite video then you don't need the modulator.

OK, but the RF Modulator only has 3 inputs and the dongle has 6 plugs????

Ahhh,

This is the cable I have.

Was connected to my daughter's TV. She moved to school and took that TV with her.

The only TV I have only has a coax input...
